6.14 Hoa ‘inea” – As Five-0 investigates a double homicide involving marital infidelity, McGarrett and the team recount their disastrous Valentine’s Day experiences, on HAWAII FIVE-0
CBS translated Hoa ‘inea to Misery Loves Company
I don’t have time this weekend for a lengthy review, but I hope I will get my points across with less words than usual. 😉
Let me start with saying that I never got the fuss about Valentine’s Day. Frankly, that holiday is total crap in my eyes. I don’t like ‘special’ days were you’re supposed to tell your loved ones how much you love them. I’d rather do that whenever I want, and not when the industry dictates. If you need a special day to realize or show your appreciation to someone, you should really think about what is wrong with you.
Anyway… getting off the soapbox and let’s talk about the episode. In case anyone got a little confused with the timeline, here it is. Honestly, I was thinking about how wrong it was during my first viewing. I read 36 hours earlier. Yes, is does pay if you can read right. 🙂 So, I was thinking how the heck did Steve, or any of the others know what was happening in the future? According to my math 36 hours ago happens before 23 hours ago. Yeah, well, as I said if you could read… 🙂
I loved Grover. His outfit was just hilarious. And I loved his mimic every time he realized that everyone got a table at Morimoto’s except him. He is just golden.
And I loved that he went to Steve first after he was thrown out by his wife. I bet they would have had a great time. Too bad, Steve had not been home. 😉
I had to laugh at Chin’s story. Loved to see Duke’s wife. Oh, and nice body, by the way. 🙂
Ha! And as I predicted Abby is not the real deal. I knew there was something fishy about her.
Danny’s story is still not of any kind of interest to me. But it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Although I couldn’t care less for Melissa, or was it Amber? Who cares? But, I have to agree with Steve, he’s an idiot. ‘happy valentine’s day, Danny’ Jeez.
I’m not going to mention what kind of an ass he again was. Ups, guess I just did. He really doesn’t know his buddy at all. What an idiot. Period.
Moving on. Kono. Poor girl. I felt for her. And I really liked her in this episode. Really, I did. Good job by Kono and the actress. This might even be a first from me. 🙂
Jerry. Don’t care at all.
Steve was simply awesome. I loved his playful acting with his team. I LOVED him in black. Wow. This man is getting more attractive with every episode. Unbelievable.
I also loved that they mentioned how serious his relationship with Cath was, still is, in my eyes. And I have a new name for Blondie. Rebound girl. RBG. ☺ She doesn’t have a chance to become anything more than some happy time for Steve. That guy is still hopelessly in love with Cath.
I mean seriously; after all these months he still has the ring, which is worth the amount of a new truck, in his drawer? And deleting her contact info? ROTFL. As if he wouldn’t know them by heart. That was just a totally over the top, overly dramatic stupid play by PL who thinks such scenes are dramatic. Or show us that he is done with the woman he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. It’s laughable.
I still believe Cath and Steve are the endgame. And even if they are not… Steve and Lynn are not the final ‘product’. That last scene of the two reminded me an awful lot of episode 5.06 with Ellie and Steve. Remember, his buddy? I doubt Lynn will ever be more than a person he enjoys having sex with. I don’t see any real chemistry, or even any feelings resembling more than sexual attraction.
I will enjoy this playful Steve having fun with some woman or even women. A fun Steve is fun to watch. But as I said I see all this Lynn stuff as an interlude. And therefore it is fun.
And honestly, the scenes with him on the coach all in black can very easily become one of my favorite scene of all seasons. That was such fun to watch. I loved it.
And a word of wisdom to all the people complaining about Steve having sex with someone he never even told he loved her. He was with Cath for ten years or so before he told her he loved her for the first time… over the darn phone. So don’t fall into the trap of the double standard. Why should Steve, who is a male in his prime, not have sex with an attractive woman he doesn’t love? Besides, this is the second woman in six years we see him making out with, if you can call what we actually saw making out. (We only saw one very short kiss, we never even saw them in bed.) For the main character to be a one-woman-guy… well, that is really something. So, let him have some fun for a change. Don’t be such hypocrites.
Oh, I almost forgot, there was a crime of the week. Good case. Enough said. 🙂
What is my verdict? I loved the team working together. Although we didn’t really see much of them together. But they did it really well this time. I loved the humor. I loved all their stories. And I really, I mean really loved Steve.
I guess I have to give it an awesome. I really enjoyed it a lot.

And please remember, I don’t write reviews with the claim to be objective. This is how I perceived this episode. If you disagree… that is just fine. I don’t claim in any way that my opinion is the right and only one. This is supposed to be fun, so, don’t take any of this too seriously. Always remember, this is just a TV show.
